several hundreds of them will lose track of their mobile device. michael finney has some advice on how to keep that from happening to you. >> the stories of smartphone thefts are the stuff of legends here in san francisco. >> i witnessed a woman get her phone snatched from her hands right over there. >> this woman's daughter was ripped off in oakland. >> they just took her phone from her hand while she was texting. >> while city streets can be tough on smartphone users, festivals are wicked in their own ways. >> festivals are one of those places people tend to lose or misplace their phone. >> she is with the mobile security firm "lookout." we are in golden gate park, watching festival organizers get ready for the big weekend. we are also talking about preparations for festival goers. >> have a pass code on your device. if you have a pass code, no one can access your personal content on the phone. number two, when you are at a concert. the signals and connectivity can be shoddy and people's batteries start to die. make sure you go with fully-charged battery.
6:46 am
>> power is especially important if you use an app that helps track down your phone if it is lost or stolen. lookout has one that snaps a picture and sends you an e-mail. >> you can see this is what it would look like if you got it in your in box. the person of the person who has your phone, as well as the location of the missing device. >> the basic lookout app is free. a more robust one costs three dollars a month. last year when outside lands were over, wallets, keys, and lots of phones. that's what was left behind. it will be the same this year. but perhaps not for you. >> when i pick my cell phone up, i'm hovered over it like a bear. >> now at any big festival, especially going in and coming out, be on the lookout for pick pockets. your phone is just as valuable as your wallet. i'm michael finney, 7 on your side. >> so how is the weather going to be for outside lands today. >> plenty of clouds, a few peaks of sun.
6:47 am
low 60s. it was actually kind of nice idea. and when the fog is already in, you don't get much of the gusty winds. it's more like the afternoon when it's trying to clear and move back in. it will be situated along the coast, and that means we will look for a fairly similar conditions as yesterday. although i do think you will see a few peaks of sun throughout the day. live doppler 7hd this morning, we have plenty of cloud cover along the central coast, around oakland this morning. and san francisco. but we want to get you updated on the remnants of gazelle. no longer a hurricane, but look at all the rain. plenty of rain through maui and kauai. a little flooding is possible but they dodged a big bullet with much of this dissipating around the big island. lots of power outages and trees down on the big island. so some cleanup certainly underway. but here is the forecast for the next hurricane that is a category 2. this is julio. it's at 100 mile-an-hour winds
6:48 am
and it continues to lift to the north and east of the hawaiian islands. that's some good news. still could see some rain with this but right now it's on track to miss the hawaiian islands. we are looking at still lots of rain there and plenty of cleanup in the days ahead. back home in the south bay this morning we are looking at some sunshine. this is a lock at san jose where temperatures are cool in the 50s for the most part. we are is at in san jose. 57 gilroy. good morning san francisco, 56 for you and oakland at 59. our exploratorium camera, plenty of gray out there. the marine layer over 1500 feet deep and it will continue to deepen as an area of low pressure visits us later on today. 58 in concord. it's clear for you, as well as livermore. so that low is going to do several things. it's going to keep us from getting too hot. keep the low clouds and fog intact. and then mix things out a bit. we will look for the coastal fog really not to go anywhere throughout the next 24 hours. then we will see a little bit
6:49 am
more sunshine tomorrow afternoon. and also we could see some drizzle in between before that fog begins to clear. but the bigger picture will allow for the area of low pressure, a couple areas of low pressure to allow for more showers and the possibility of thunderstorms in the higher elevations. certainly by tomorrow night into monday. but locally we are looking at this to really mix out the low clouds and fog. here we are skipping today into sunday and monday. we have the low. we have the moisture coming up from the south. and once again, if you had some vacation plans in the sierra nevada, it's been awfully cloudy and even rain for much of last week. we are still looking to cloudy skies with rain possible into the upcoming work week. the beginning, anyway. outside lands upper 50s, 10:00. by 2:00 we will see a few peaks of sun in the low 60s. breezy by the evening hours. the afternoon should be pleasant, and temperatures ranging from the mid-60s in san francisco today to 72 in
6:50 am
oakland. look for 85 in concord. with 87 in livermore. upper 80s the warmest location for inland valleys for morgan hill from antioch and if you are headed over to oakland this afternoon, later in the day today temperatures will still be in the 60s. the sun sets at 8:10. and lower 60s by the evening hours. so the accuweather seven-day forecast then very little change except for extra cloud cover throughout tomorrow and monday due to that low. and then low 90s with a warming trend, a modest one, though, into the middle of week around the bay and inland. really, really nice. no triple digit heats. and it will get warm if you need it warmer. >> nice and mild. we will take it. thank you, lisa. in sports, football season is almost here. next friday night the raiders play their first home preseason game of a falling last night against the strike, in minnesota. here's sports director larry beil with the highlights in this morning's sports.
6:51 am
>> good morning, everybody. the raiders open the preseason last night in minnesota. it wasn't pretty. on their very first offensive play, the raiders were called for a false start. and that pretty much set the tone for a mistake-filled evening. raider nation making the trip to minnesota. vikings went 70 yards in 10 plays on their opening series. matt a one-yard plunge. 7-0 vikes. shamarr, 3 of 7, 21 yards. should have been caught. a lot of drops by the receivers in the game. and derek carr, that one too high. off the hands of him. picked off of right into the arms of kurt coleman. and for 94 yards. the raiders score late. a minute and a half to go, matt mcgloin on a ten-yard scamper but the raiders would fall 10-6. round 2, pga championship. roy mcilroy gunning for his fourth major title. 4-under 67. he's 9-under leading by 1 after 36 holes. mickelson, just three back. tiger shot a 74, finished 6-over
6:52 am
and missed the cut. this is the very last thing the giants need right now. bandon belt goes back on the disabled list because of concussion-related symptoms. so he's not laying at all this weekend in k.c. hunter pence, michael morse getting ready for boot camp or something. 2-2 in the sixth. the shot and mike morse the diving play but he and matt duffy both make diving errors. everybody safe. next batter billy butler. base hit that shoots through into right field. kind of rolls through really. and that brings in the game-winning run. madison bumgarner went 8 innings, allowed 4 runs and took the loss. giants fall 4-2. they remain 3 1/2 back of the dodgers, who also lost. a's and twins, some say world series. kurt suzuki, a rocket. josh donaldson, a glove save a beauty and starts an inning-ending double play.
6:53 am
scoreless in the fifth. bases loaded for coco crisp. he's the igniter, catalyst. finds the gap and that will bring everybody home. 3-0 on a crisp triple. a's were cruising 6-0, but scott kazmir gave up five runs in the seventh. parmalee, that's a fireball down the line. kazmir would get the win and go 13-4. sean doolittle little gets shawn willingham, looking to end it. 6-5, the final. a's four on the angels who lost. hawaii have a great weekend, everybody, i'm larry beil. >> the jazz fest and how organizers are making this year's music
